    I really like these “nothing on” nights as it allows for catch-up–especially with Monday (also known as Thursday 2.0) looming. Time to start the second half of Buffy S4, Angel S1. Realized I was watching Buffy S4 in the wrong order–it’s wasn’t clear on the menus how to navigate, where Angel pops you to the next episode when you return to the main menu.

    Kyle, No kidding, I spent all day yesterday and into the night catching up with stuff mostly from both Monday and Thursday and still have some stuff left. Won’t have anymore Buffy or Angel episodes to watch until Monday. But, have a few screeners to watch for Damages S.3, Secret Diary S.3 and Greek, which will all be playing at the same time on Mondays. So, I’ll be actually getting ahead a little, at least for a week.
